On December 23, 2019 Klamath County Sheriff’s Office employees presented a check for $1,000.00 to Marc Kane, Executive Director of the Klamath Basin Senior Citizens’ Center.
KCSO employees and volunteers throughout November and December purchased raffle tickets for items donated by individuals and local businesses with the proceeds of those raffles being donated to the Klamath Basin Senior Citizens Center Meals Program.
KCSO employees were moved to help after learning the senior center prepares, serves and delivers over 250 meals per day for a total of 89,000 to 93,000 meals per year. In recent years the state cut their funding which normally would have resulted in ending the program however the Senior Center chose to ‘foot-the-bill’ and is paying the full cost of $6 per meal every day for every meal.
Klamath County Sheriff Chris Kaber commented: “It is so wonderful to see the spirit of giving back demonstrated by Klamath County Sheriff’s Office volunteers and employees; while planning a Christmas Party for themselves they integrated an idea to raise funds for a Senior Center program that provides meals for the elderly and infirm in the community. What a great office to be a part of.”
The employees and volunteers of Klamath County Sheriff’s Office wish to thank the individuals and businesses below for their generous donations of prizes for the raffle.
